Toby (my dog) get's a new blanket and squeaky toy every year, my youngest cat Pixie get's a pretty new collar and maybe a ball or a mouse toy and the oldest cat Tiger doesn't like a lot of things, apart from food so he gets two pouches of cat treats.

When I was little we had a Persian cat. We always got her a catnip mouse for Christmas. It came packaged in a little cardboard box, so we always wrapped the box in Christmas paper.

present

I have a 5 year-old golden retriever and I think before we had kids, she got more gifts than my husband and I did for each other. Now that we've had kids, we've cut back for her a little bit, but she still gets a lot. She's very spoiled! She loves Christmas and opening gifts! She knows what to do as soon as the gift is thrown in front of her!

We have a stocking for Ella too. I think that is a great idea! He's a part of the family! Who cares what other people think anyway. That's what I always tell myself. If you want to do it, then go for it!

JeanetteDi has shown a merry disposition
I have two cats and they are most certainly included in my Christmas plans. They have stockings and they get presents. Granted, I think they're more interested in my presents than theirs as they love to lie on new clothes and get their little furs all over them! It's like a way of christening the new clothes into the house. Don't even get me started on the wrapping paper and cardboard boxes. My cats would live in boxes if I let them.

Yep. Well, the dogs, not the cats lol. We live in the country so cats come and go. We have always had presents from Santa under our tree for the dogs. Usually bones or treats.
